[1] Swiss library records give 1935

[2] DNB records give 1935

[3] The DNB also records 1935 for this expanded edition, which however cannot be correct because the advertising at the rear features another work by the author entitled “Der Sternseher”, which did not appear according to the DNB until about 1940. I would therefore tentatively suggest 1939-1941 for this second edition, subject to the reliability of the DNB’s record for “Der Sternseher”

[4] It reads: “Written and Verbal Horoscopes: Alex C. Ross Astrologer and Lecturer – 65 Perine Street, Dansville, N. Y – Phone 857-R”.

[5] It is printed in blue typescript and entitled ‘Astro-Diagnosis and Astro-Therapy – Lesson for Probationers – February , 1950’

[6] A primer of astrology and not, as the title might suggest, astronomy or mysticism. The author is presumed most likely to be the same Alexander Ross as Alex C. Ross, q. v. above

[6a] A series of publications collectively directed by Rossi, together with a scientific committee of 11 other scholars

[6b] A compilation of eight historical essays by different scholars, including Lucia Bellizia and the editors, together with an introduction by Adele Maiello. Bellizia’s contribution is a study of Ptolemy’s Tetrabiblos Book III, chapter 13

[7] The original publication date is given as 2002, but the date of this printing is not shown

[8] A facsimile edition of the copy held by the Bibliothèque Mazarine of the original published chez Guillaume Rouillé, à l’Escu de Venise, Lyon, 1550

[9] A print-on-demand facsimile-based reprint, issued March 2009, of the original dissertation

[10] I have not yet been able to paginate this because it remains shrink-wrapped within temporary card end-supports awaiting binding

[11] The concepts in this volume are illustrated through studies of the lives (and, where applicable, deaths) of famous individuals, including Grace Kelly, John F. Kennedy, Vivien Leigh, Harry Truman and Mikhael Gorbachev

[12] The pagination of this volume is erratic and gives a false indication of the extent of its content, implying a total page count 21 pages in excess of the reality, thanks to numerous blanks. Further, the last three leaves of charts bound in the reverse order from that indicated by their pagination, but this might have been a mistake specific to this copy

[13] A fellow of All Souls College, Oxford

[14] A facsimile reprint of the original British publication of Nichols & Co., 1908. It would appear to have been a small-format book in view of the large type size on the reprint and line count of just 21 lines per page

[15] Falsely dated 1980, but the printing of the publisher’s email address shows this printing to be post the mid-1990s.

[15a] A print-on-demand book, copyrighted 2010; this copy purchased new in 2020

[16] Copyrighted 1979, but clearly a much more recent reprint of the original ASI Publishers edition above

[17] Full title thus to inner title page and spine. The dj front cover bears the following additional subtitle, not found in the book itself: “A Reinterpretation of the Sabian symbols, presenting them as a contemporary American I Ching”

[18] Declared the first American edition of ‘Birth Patterns for a New Humanity’, q.v. below

[19] A German translation of ‘The Pulse of Life’, q. v. below

[20] A German translation of ‘An Astrological Mandala’, q. v. above
